“Future of the Digital Transformation” – Research Study Presentation

The Centre for Informatics and Society (C!S) of the Faculty  for Informatics at the TU Wien invites to a presentation of a research study based on the Delphi method focusing on the future of the Digital Transformation.

The C!S was founded in 2016 with the mission to investigate the issues and questions arising between academic research, technological advancements and the challenges and consequences society faces due to those developments.

The current study was conducted during the last months of 2017 and investigates consequences, challenges and future prospects of the Digital Transformation with an interdisciplinary approach based on the participation of a number of international  experts from a variety of academic disciplines. The goal of this Delphi study was to determine whether a group of experts can come to  a consensus regarding which areas of society will be most affected by the Digital Transformation, which technologies will be most relevant to that change and which issues introduced by those technologies and their widespread use require particular attention.

The results of the study will be presented to the audience in an easily accessible way. Following this, a moderated panel of representatives from politics, business, academia and public administration will help start a broad conversation about the results of the study specifically as well as general future prospects for the Digital Transformation in general.

The event will be held in German.
